Stickle pitches Eagles to fifth seed in FCIAC

Billy Stickle pitched a complete-game two-hitter and coach Phil Pacelli’s Trumbull High baseball team secured the fifth spot in the FCIAC playoffs with a 1-0 victory over Trinity Catholic in Stamford on Friday.

The Eagles will visit either St. Joseph or New Canaan in Monday’s quarterfinals, depending on the outcome of the Cadets game with Fairfield Warde on Saturday.

James DeNomme drove in the only run with a sacrifice fly in the first inning, as Trumbull improved to 14-6 overall and 13-5 in the FCIAC.

Stickle struck out seven batters.
